    Sent my ucas form of 3 weeks ago, and I realised that there are actually colleges at Durham that would suit me much better than Grey. I want to switch to either Collingwood or St Aidens. Is this possible/ anyone have any experience with switching colleges?
    Im worried that it might be too late as im startin gettin offers now, and if i got one from durham id be gutted if i couldnt go to the college i wanted.

    My only suggestion would be to call Durham in the near future and make your request. I expect it's not uncommon, wanting to change colleges.

    I think doing that would be a sure way to piss them off...

    im not so sure now. i think ur application will have been sent to grey's .. and then a reversal would be a little heavy on the admin and admission tutors. I also thought about changing, but now I think I'l stick with St Mary's

    Once you get an offer it will most definitely be impossible to change. You are first accepted by the faculty, then by a college. Once you are accepted by a college I really doubt they'd let you change due to student numbers and college-subject allocations...

    i agree. after all, the worst they can say is :: no you can't change. so you got nothing to lose. if they say you can, do it. if not, unlucky. but worth a go.

    lol sorry. I just e-mailed the economics admission officer ,kathryn cowton, and basically said that I originally narrowed college choices down to 3, and chose one that after further consideration I feel isnt right for me and said I regretted having not applied to Collingwood. So basically I asked if my application may be considered as one to Collingwood rather than Grey. We'll see what happens...
